Stackable washer and dryer

I want to put a washer dryer here. I know the outlet needs to be gfci but should I have someone lower the tap and cut down the drain so they are below the outlet?

It customary to have the receptacle above the appliance so that it can be unplugged easily for service..... however the receptacle where it is... is ok too.

I can't see the floor in your picture but the drain line needs to be as tall as the washer to keep the water in the washer from siphoning out by itself.

Drain pipe looks to low to me but can't see floor. Must be higher than water level in washer. Some washers will not work with gfci.
